I found your Web Site by Google
And I wish you the best you can get,
the peace of God through Jesus Christ.

Welcome to visit my Site.

In the time of the apostles any church did not exist, and
therefore the word "church" does not occur in the Bible.
Everywhere in your English Bible where you see the word
"church" it is a grave translation error. Also Matt. 16:18.
It ought to be "assembly".

In the reality, the word "church" occurs not at all in the Bible.
I have five Bible translations in Swedish, (the oldest from
1703). Nowhere in these Bibles does the word "church"
(kyrka) occur. I have also a reference book where the New
Testament is translated word by word from Greek to Swedish.
Everywhere they translate the Greek word "ekklesia" to
församling (assembly).

Perhaps you want to raise the objection, there are many
bible translations in English which all have the word "church".
This is a very stupid argument. A translation error does not
become better of repeating. A lie is a lie no matter how many
time it be repeated.

In Col. 1:18 (KJV) we can read: "And he (Christ) is the head
of the body, the church ..." And in Eph. 5:23-24, "For the
husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of
the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the
church is subject unto Christ..."

This is a lie! The church is not subjected unto Christ. The
head of the Church is the pope, the black pope, and the devil.
The Bible translators do not make a difference between God's
true people and Satan's Church. From the Church's deeds we
shall know the Church. Matt. 7:15-20. By their fruit we shall
recognize the false priesthood. The Catholic Church has
persecuted, tortured and murdered many millions of Christians.
This is a well-known fact. How could a good tree bear such
an evil fruit?

Why did the Bible translators use the same word "church" also
for God's people, the Body of Christ? Why did not they see the
difference between the murderer and the victims for the
murderer? The first Christians were no church. Calling the
first Christians "the first church" is a grave insult against these
Christians. The Church is a mass murderer. The devil is the
real church father.

If we use the same name "church" on the murderer as on the
victims for the murderer, how then can we know what that
means when someone says "church"?

Right since the great falling away took place a very long
time ago and the first churches came into existence,
2 Thess. 2:3, God's people have lived in slavery under
Satan's churches and denominations. The churches have
all the time served the devil, but pretend to be God's
servants and representatives. The churches have never
been any God's assemblies or God's temples. They have
already from their beginning been harlot beings. They
are born through religious fornication. People have
mixed God's word with doctrines of evil spirits, and so
new churches appear.

Churches and denominations are Satan's tools to hold control
over the Christians. The purpose of the churches is that with
false doctrine defend churches and denominations, and to hold
their members in religious slavery, and hinder them to
understand God's word.

Rev. 18:4 is the most powerful revival message of the Lord
we can find in the Bible. Yet, this truth of the Bible has not
been preached among God's people, and therefore the
Christians are entirely unprepared for Jesus' coming. Only
few Christians have obeyed this command of the Lord to
come out of the great Babylon.

Just this is revival, that all God's people become free from
all churches and denominations, the great Babylon. Many
preachers are speaking that Jesus shall come, but they do
nothing to prepare themselves.

None be saved by works of the law, Gal. 2:16,
and none be saved without works of faith. Matt. 7:21-23.

Prepare you to meet Jesus!

Evil spirits in the churches

Why did the Pentecostal Revival take an end?

What does hinder the Antichrist to appear?
What is the Restrainer?

Jesus cannot come today because God's people are not ready
